Writing for Ms.

Ms. is a multi-issue and globally-focused media outlet interested in a plethora of topics—from policy and politics to popular culture and the arts, from education to the environment, from violence to abortion. 

We consider reported pieces, features and social commentary rooted in an intersectional feminist lens. We do not consider articles on fashion, beauty, fitness, travel, food or of a “self-help” variety.

Writers interested in pitching us should reference our recent content, in print and online, to familiarize themselves with our voice and approach.

Pitches and Submissions

We consider pitches as well as completed submissions. Ideas and manuscripts can be emailed to queries@msmagazine.com. Submissions received will be considered by our print or digital teams based on our editorial needs at the time.

All queries should clearly state the author’s expertise on an issue and their qualifications to cover it. When submitting pitches or completed works, please also include two or three previously published clips and a headshot and short author bio.

Pitches should include a detailed description of what a completed article will look like and an expectation of when it could be ready for review. Submissions of completed work should be prefaced with a short summary of the topic and approach.

If your query intrigues us, we will contact you. Because of the volume of pitches and submissions we receive, we may not be able to respond to your query.

Rates vary and are not discussed until an assignment has been made. Please do not follow up on pitches and submissions via telephone.
